About Us

We’re the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle.

Our goal is to connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, transform the school run and deliver a happier, healthier commute.

We work in partnership, bringing people together to find the right solutions. And we make the case for walking and cycling by using robust evidence and showing what can be done.

We’re grounded in communities and believe that grassroots support combined with political leadership drives real change, fast.

Our vision

A society where the way we travel creates healthier places and happier lives for everyone.

Our work leads to:

-improved wellbeing

-improved physical health

-stronger social connections


Custodian of the National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a network of signed paths and routes for walking, cycling and exploring outdoors.

It connects people and places across the UK. It also provides traffic-free spaces for everyone to enjoy.

For scenic daily commutes to weekend walks and rides – and everything in between – this is a network of paths for everyone.

As its custodian, Sustrans is working with stakeholders, supporters, volunteers and community friends to improve the Network for everyone who already uses it as well as those who want to but can’t.
